Three Reasons to Visit a Psychiatrist
Visiting a psychiatrist is something that is important for mental and emotional health. Unfortunately, we find that most people do not seek out help until the situation has become extreme and they no longer feel that they can handle it on their own. Often this is brought on by something dramatic like a fight or accident or trouble at work. Keeping that in mind, we recommend that people seek out assistance rather than waiting for a dramatic event to occur. It is never too early to seek professional help, guidance or simply to speak with someone. Doing so can prevent the escalation of problems and can open the door to new possibilities in life.
Speak with confidence
When visiting our psychiatrist office, patients should be aware that anything said is said in confidence. We keep patient information completely private and do not share anything without the express written permission of our patients. This makes it possible to speak freely, be expressive and do so without fear of repercussions or being exposed to friends, family or colleagues. Our patients are safe and secure in our office.
Money should never stand in the way of seeking medical attention. Too often, people view visiting a psychiatrist as something that can wait because of the cost. Many insurance companies will pay for psychiatric care so this may not be an issue. Even if it is, we work with patients to come up with a financial solution to ensure that everyone can receive the care they need.
